I am a 19 year old single parent. My lil Jazmin is almost 8 months old. I moved back in with my mom and share a room and bed with my daughter... Not by choice. I breastfeed her so it was just so much easier to lay down with her to feed her at night and fall asleep. But that lil habbit cost me my bed!
Our room is too small for a crib or bassinet but we are looking to move into a bigger house with an extra bedroom so that i'll have somewhere else to put Jazmins stuff besides the living room.
When we move, I was hoping to set up her crib so that I won't have to worry about her crawling off the bed when i leave the room. (please don't tell me she won't, cause she does)
Aaaanyways, my point is I realized that i don't want to be sharing my bed with her till she leaves for college! And when I am ready to move her out of my bed, how do I go about doing so?
I can't get the girl to so much as take a nap without me being attatched to her! She is very attatched to me, and I to her, but I am just worried about the future!
My sister was in the same situation and now has a new baby. But she can't get her 9yr old, 13 yr old and 15yr old to sleep in their own rooms!
I DON'T WANNA BE HER!!
any advice please?
